Sara’s approach to art is best described in her own words:

STOP … and Smell the Flowers

Living life to the fullest is really about enjoying each moment and it is the simple things that make life wonderful.

We live in such a fast-paced, technological world and our days are so filled with endless busy-ness, that it is hard to really stop what we are doing and have meaningful experiences.

One thing that I have loved, is being able to take time out of my hectic life to create art. I have also found a great personal connection to the idea of stopping. We have to stop to see or smell a flower, to look at the clouds, to pray, and think about a higher power, to be in tune with the desires of our hearts and the inspiration we are receiving.

My paintings represent beautiful, colorful moments. Through them I have been able to share my happiness and zest for life.

I realized that the way I painted was almost exactly the way I live life – especially my parenting style: Jump right in without much of a plan but great expectations, make it as colorful and as interesting as possible, make a few mistakes along the way, and end up with something that’s a little messy and rough, but full of color and character.

Sara’s art is held by private collectors around the nation. Sara has grown roots in Kingman, Arizona, initiating several culturally progressive projects for the benefit of local families, including Kingman Center for the Arts and Beale Street Theater.
